The Spokesperson for Imo State Command, Orlando Ikeokwu on Monday, confirmed that the previous governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, has been released.
Ikeokwu told Channels that Okorocha was released on Sunday night after he was “invited” for “questioning” over the unsealing of the Spring Palm Estate linked to his wife, Nkechi.
“He was released later in the dark,” the PPRO said.
He added that “If anybody is found culpable, definitely, he is going to be charged to court. If the investigation proves that he (Okorocha) has committed an offense, he is going to be charged to court.”
PM News had earlier reported that the ex-governor stormed the estate together with his supporters, policemen, soldiers, and personnel of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Sunday morning and ordered the unsealing of the estate.
Government officials had also mobilized to the estate, resulting in a confrontation that left many persons injured and cars were smashed.
